This 58% chocolate + roses & lemon bars were inspired in a famous Ecuadorian beverage called Rosero. This drink, whose name is probably derived from the rose-water used in its production, is brewed through a combination of various ingredients, chief among them being lemon juice.
The Hoja Verde chocolates are made with premium cocoa beans grown in the tropical lowlands of Ecuador, the most biodiverse country on earth. Ecuadorian cocoa has long been recognized as the world’s finest beans. Its ‘Arriba’ variety brings an unequalled depth in aroma and flavor.
